However, even these dogs were small once, with their saggy faces still intact.

Best Boxer Dog Names

Cute Boxer Dog

One of the best, and most obvious, ways to name your Boxer dog is to name them after a famous boxer.

Not only do they share the same title, but the qualities and traits of these dogs often resemble that of a boxer in the ring: both are expected to be tough, strong, and determined.

The Boxer dog is related to the extinct Bullenbeisser dog, which used to hunt wild boar, meaning that these goofy, saggy-faced canines aren’t so far away from the tough and hard-hitting professions of heavy-weight boxers.

All the monikers in this list are inspired by the best and most talented boxers in history, and would make a great choice for your boxer dog!
